Roundup: A’s, Red Sox continue to add
The A’s may never land Adrian Beltre, but that hasn’t stopped an already busy week for them from chugging along.
- The Rangers added a Japanese ballplayer for the second time this offseason in Hirotoshi Onaka, an outfielder. They signed right-hander Yoshinori Tateyama last month. Texas also announced Thursday it signed right-hander Yhency Brazoban to a Minor League deal.
- Looking at a drastically changed bullpen next season, Tampa Bay signed reliever Joel Peralta.
- Tsuyoshi Nishioka, a middle infielder, is nearing a deal with the Twins. He and Alexi Casilla are a likely double-play combo in 2011.
- Kerry Wood might be coming home to Chicago – the Cubs that is.
